Looking back, 2013 was.. exceptional.
As cliche as it may sounds, tt was one roller coaster ride full of ups and downs. According to my old blog, I started January 2013 not so good. I also started a project ( My 365×365 instagram project, in which I was supposed to post a portrait each day with a little story of that person), and failed to finish it. The instagram account is still up and running though, maybe one day I’ll finish that project.
Come February, my Mum got sick, went to the hospital and had Appendectomy. It was a tough time but we were very lucky to have support from our family and friends. March was when I went to Kuala Lumpur with Adhisty, my friend to attend Future Music Festival. We saw Bloc Party (!!!), Temper Trap, PSY, De La Soul, Naughty by Nature, and Rita Ora. We also got to meet my old friend from the UK – Daniel, and stayed in Mba Anda (my cousin)’s apartment, overall had a great weekend break.
In April I got promoted, Anggun got married to Arbow – I don’t really remember May, I guess time flies with daily routine and activities. In June I went to Bali with Kartika, Ibnu, Poppa, Dino and Thia, my friends from Bournemouth and went beach hopping, so fun! After Bali comes Dian and Pandu’s wedding, and afterwards sending them off to their new life in London.
July was when opportunity knocked in and I decided to take it.. it was when I bought the ticket to the US.. with all the help that was so surreal and I couldn’t imagine before. July was also R’s birthday. A cake was delivered to his workshop, his present was previously sent, but there was a certain disappointment.. That disappointment led to doubt, which made August was a month full of doubt.
Come September, was when my trip to the US happened. So happy!! I’ll probably write more about this in separate posts 🙂
October and November were filled with grad school application. I was very busy, and struggled with work and the application process. Thank God I finally submitted my applications in 1st of December.. and got to enjoy my December.
So that’s it! a little flashback to 2013. Of all the things that happened, the ups and downs, I am thankful and feel so blessed. 🙂
